$25 and under gift No. 16: bottle cap tripod

At the risk of overdoing the whole bottles, mugs, glasses theme to this year’s gift guide, here’s another liquid-vessel item that has us pretty psyched: the Bottle Cap Tripod ($10), from BK-based Dynomighty Design. This tiny tripod, which doubles as a high-tech stopper for your potables, screws right onto any soda- or water-bottle top on one end and into your point & shoot on the other. What you get is an ultra portable, swiveling-yet-stable mount to save your shots on windy days in Red Hook or just from chronically over-caffeinated hands. The tripod’s still available online, or you can try one of the many BK stores that carries Dynomighty’s products.
